CopyCat Cinnabons!

I've had this recipe for years, and no longer know where I got it. From the web undoubtedly. It proports to be an authentic copy of the famous Cinnabon. I've had both, and I don't think I can tell the difference. So put your apron on and get baking. These freeze well, so don't be daunted by the amount.

How to Make CopyCat Cinnabons!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Whisk together the yeast, water and tsp sugar. Once proofed (if you do that) place in mixer. I use a KitchenAid but you can do this by hand. Stir in each of the remaining dough ingredients one at a time until a dough has been formed. Kneed for 5 minutes on medium in the mixer.
  • 2Cover in an oiled bowl in a warm place and let rise until doubled.
  • 3Once your dough has risen. Take a baking pan (at least the next size up from 9 x 11. And add the melted butter and sugar evenly over the bottom.
  • 4Roll out dough to a rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the rectangle with the filling, starting with the butter and ending with the nuts. Roll from the long side. Slice into 1/4 inch rounds and carefully set in the baking pan on the melted butter and sugar bed.
  • 5Cover and set in warm place to rise. They should puff up really nicely and be tight in the pan, forcing the nice bubble top on each roll.
  • 6Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned.
  • 7When cool, add either a cream cheese frosting or the powdered sugar/milk/butter streusal topping.
